These traditional dainty sandwiches are an essential part of an English tea party.
The Illustrated Kitchen Bible: 1,000 Family Recipes from Around the World
|1 cucumber, lightly peeled||Softened butter, for spreading|
|1/2 tsp salt||Freshly ground black pepper|
|2 tsp white wine vinegar||Tiny watercress leaves, or microgreens, to garnish|
|8 thin slices white or wheat bread|
Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the cucumber into rounds, no thicker than ... in (2mm). Place the cucumber slices in a colander and sprinkle with the salt. Let stand for 20-30 minutes to allow the excess liquid to drain off. When ready to use, sprinkle the slices with the vinegar.
Spread each slice of bread with some softened butter. Arrange the cucumber slices in an even layer over 4 slices of bread. Season with pepper, then top with the remaining bread slices, buttered sides down.
Cut off the crusts from each sandwich, then cut each sandwich into squares, triangles, or rectangles. Arrange the sandwiches on a serving plate. Sprinkle with watercress, and serve at once.
